I think it's safe to say that we've all gotten behind the wheel when we were tired.
I know I have.
To offset the drowsiness, I've opened the windows, cranked the AC, turned up the radio (but not too loud), tried not to stare off into the distance for too long, chugged coffee, etc.
But I also have to say, if I knew the statistics, I would've made better choices.
